Trump threatens to call US military to close south border 4,000-strong migrant caravan pushes north

President Trump warned Thursday he will “call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER” with Mexico if officials there don’t stop the northward flow of a growing migrant caravan that's swelled in size to about 4,000 people.

The president’s latest threat against the caravan that originated in Honduras – and which is heading to the U.S. in a bid to escape Honduras’ poverty and violence – comes as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is heading to Central America to talk with leaders about the issue.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

He added: “In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!”

Build the wall wave
That is going to stop these illegal entries.
Yes, W. Consult with former East German border police. A few still alive. Ask them about building walls. They know a thing or two about it. Those heat sensitive automatic machine gun towers will replace what hasn't worked. Drones watching them at all times as well. Any Mexican who gets a notion to make one inoperable gets to do it only once. Next topic. Trump think.

The technical term for what Mexico and other countries have been doing to us is, "military colonization".

Latin American countries send settlers across the border. They set up shop here, sign up for every welfare program under the sun, and send the money back home to their families... and their countries.

Some countries actually use these payments as a major part of their economy.

President Trump has talked about taxing these payments to build a wall. But now he's cracking down on foreign aid to these countries.

“We have today informed the countries of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador that if they allow their citizens, or others, to journey through their borders and up to the United States, with the intention of entering our country illegally, all payments made to them will STOP (END)!” he tweeted.
